Product Description

Review

"...an excellent little book...small enough that busy clinicians can easily read it cover to cover." (Psychiatric Times, June 2007)

"…a basic guide to drugs used to treat mental disorders…at a reasonable cost and in a handy format." (American Reference Books Annual, March 2007)

"…a welcome addition…well-written, easy to use, and thorough in its coverage…psychiatry residents as well as practicing clinicians will find this a useful, quick referral source." (Doody's Health Services)

From the Back Cover

Handbook of Psychiatric Drugs is a comprehensive, clear, concise, quick reference to psychiatric drug therapies, designed to guide the clinician on the selection and implementation of treatment for mental illness.

Each chapter is organised by drug class and follows a standard format for ease of use. Concise sections on pharmacology and indications for use are followed by detailed information on drug selection, initiation and maintenance of treatment and withdrawal. Adverse effects, contraindications and drug interactions are also reviewed in detail, along with issues such as treatment resistance and treatment evaluation.

Handbook of Psychiatric Drugs is an invaluable resource for all clinicians who use psychiatric drugs to treat medical and psychiatric illness.

Format: Paperback
In the authors' own words at the beginning of the book, this is written for clinicians, maybe especially for psychiatrists. However, I think the interested researcher or even lay person would also find it an informative read. It's not written in difficult language and I think the lay person would probably understand the vast majority of it. Author of Adjust Your Brain: A Practical Theory for Maximizing Mental Health.

Have purchased this to replace an older edition that we all found to be extremely helpful not only for patient counseling but even more so when preparing in-service presentations.

HASH(0x99f68ba0) out of 5 stars Thorough and reasonably priced... July 29 2006
By Psycheguy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This 5 X 8, 264pp paperback is essentially a second edition of the 2000 text by the same authors (though that 1st edition was more of an edited book and by a different publisher). The authors are well-known and respected in psychopharmacolgy and this 2006 edition is completely revised and updated. It includes chapters on all of the major classes of drugs used in mental health, including antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilizers, anxiolytics, sedative-hypnotics, psychostimulants, cognitive enhancers and treatments for Alzheimer's, and drugs for treating substance abuse.

There is an index. Each chapter is easy to read, comprehensive and cites current research. The book is easy to carry around and refer to, with numerous tables and charts. I carry it with me when working the ER and evaluating psychiatric and substance abusing patients who are taking medications or probably need to be taking them...

I gave it 5 stars because of all that one gets for the price (I paid $25 for it when it first came out, plus free shipping/handling so that was a great buy). I notice that the price has already increased by $2.50. Still, this is a good buy for the money. There are many other current psychopharmacolgy texts that are more detailed but also much more expensive. For something cheaper (just the necessary facts) try the book by Albers and colleagues. This book stands in the middle, so to speak, and as such is a solid piece of work and a worthwhile purchase. Recommended.

HASH(0x99c0a3f0) out of 5 stars weak index May 9 2007
By russ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The index would have been more helpful if product brand names had been included. To look up Seroquel you need to know it is quetiapine, that Prozac is fluoxetine, etc. Not a problem for a psychiatrist using these medications daily but for psychologists, family practitioners, etc., it is a limiting factor.
